I would certainly not go with him. When you meet new people meet them in a public place.

There are many ways to tip the balance in your favour - one of them is to speak to the proposer on webcam - all phones now offer the possibility. What we don't want to do is let opportunities pass us by, they don't come often when we are older and we should live each day as it comes, within the realms of security. Haven't you got a friend who could accompany you ? As in chaperone ? If the guy is genuine and he has his own place in France he could take two of you, doesn't cost any more .......

Hi Bren,
I agree with Michaeljohn, it sounds very risky to go away with someone you don't know especially to a place which he owns so presumably there would just be the two of you there. It might be better if you were staying in a large hotel with plenty of other people around you but it's not a risk that I would take. I'm quite sure that many men and women manipulate the truth and put things on their profiles in order to attract a member who has perhaps taken their fancy. I remember an ex-partner of mine stating that he enjoyed rock-climbing and canoeing - in reality he hated heights and never set foot in a canoe in the ten years that I was with him! He had obviously fancied his chances with a sporty female whose profile he had read. He also said that he was a non-smoker - perhaps cigars don't count!!! 🙂 I would advise caution - not everyone lies and I'm sure that there are some nice, decent people out there.

Sounds a bit risky to go away with someone after just 2 lines of interaction. But being adults we choose how much risk we take in life.
I don't think the people who run Silversurfers can guarantee members of the site are genuine, I don't think that would be possible, anyone can lie on a registration form.
There will always be some degree of risk, it's just about reducing that risk, for example getting to know the person first; having your first meeting in a safe public place ect...
